Louisiana Treasurer, John Kennedy, will participate in a Bayoubuzz Google Hangout Webcast discussion Wednesday August 20 at 10 a.m. to discuss the Legislative session 2014, Louisiana budget and other issues.
In Part I of a recent Google Hangout webcast, Chris Stelly, Exec. Director of the Entertainment Louisiana Economic Development discussed the exploding Louisiana film industry ranked number one in the world for movie filming due, in large part to a very generous tax incentive program introduced to the state in the early 2000's. In part II, Stelly explains the Digital Media Interactive program, which likewise offers very attractive tax incentives to software developers for work performed in the state.
Joining Stelly in the webcast, which is below, are Ronnie Bincer, Wayne Nix and Bayoubuzz Publisher Stephen Sabludowsky.

One of the major issues this Louisiana legislative session is and will be the lawsuit by a levee district against the major oil and gas industry companies.
